HDR - What is HDR? HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, and is a useful technique to use if different parts of your image have widely different exposure values. For example, the inside of a church may have brightly illuminated stained glass windows along with dark shadows. Set up the image using a tripod taking several different exposures, normally 5 from EV -2, -1, 0, +1, +2 which you can then merge using Photoshop or other post processing software.

I decided to try to create a HDR image so I took 5 exposures at -2, -1, 0, +1 and +2 EV (Exposure Value), with the f stop set to f22, with the camera on a tripod. Here’s the result. See more about this on my blog - here’s the link - http://tim-timsfotos.blogspot.ie/2014/02/hdr-howth.html
